Cornerstone OnDemand

This is a great tool for middle to a large company that wants to have virtual learning access, manager rosters, and robust reporting on multiple data points. You want to make sure you have someone fully committed in time and energy to launching and managing [Cornerstone OnDemand]. It does lift a lot of the communication burden when automating email communication and helps to track required training far better than any excel sheet.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Litmos

SAP Litmos is well suited for remote users and trainees to be able to attend training, access materials, and reflect back on what they have learned from anywhere and on any device. Our users sign themselves up and then receive an email from within SAP Litmos that gives them more detail and instruction on the courses that are assigned to them for completion. When you have hundreds of users that require annual and refresher training to match funding requirements this gives you all that you need to get the training done, track the training, and provide reports for feedback and requirements.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pros

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • Automatic recurring assignments are easy to get that refresher training out without needing to assign it fresh each time.
  • Reporting 2.0 makes it easy to write and share your reports with just selected filters. Making it easy for people receiving it to just change what they need to see.
  • Learning Admin Console makes it easy to peek at what is going on in your portal and open up connected reporting when needed.
  • Success Center is a great resource for getting peer answers to questions and learning about the releases and suggesting changes that should be added to the roadmap.
Tina Pegar | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Litmos

  • It makes training processes to be fun since it has many functions[.]
  • The learners interface is clean and fairly modern[.]
  • It has great customer support since it's very responsive to questions and request[.]
  • It's also easy to use and user's friendly[.]
Vicki Reid | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • User-submitted external training is editable by users even after it has been approved and completed on their transcript, UNLESS a transcript lock is put into place--which also renders all submitted certificates un-openable once approved. Thus they can never be referenced after approval.
  • The system is designed for annual compliance training to be re-versioned annually. I [believe it] is a very un-user friendly for training that we don't want to re-version because users take it on a rolling, as-needed basis.
  • Some very key components are not configurable and cause our users a great deal of confusion. For example, there is no way to turn off the search bar on a user transcript or even to edit the prompt text within it. Our users are constantly searching for training here, and end up re-opening/re-launching completed courses rather than registering for a new occurrence of a course.
  • In general, we find Cornerstone [onDemand] clunky and that it does not really meet our needs.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Litmos

  • Reporting usually takes me a few tries to get the reports I need, but I almost always get there after a couple of tries.
  • Providing easy access to video launches. The unique log-in token only works once, and the second time it says, "Link has expired" which leads to us regularly getting emails about why the link is expired.

As long as pricing stays reasonable, we will likely stay with Cornerstone for at least one more contract renewal. It would be a large task to migrate all of our content to a new system. However, the LMS landscape is diversifying with new startups that are showing some real innovation.

For what we need in the very near future, Litmos does not offer us the required capability. Ideally, we are looking for an integrated LMS, coaching, mobile support and content creation platform. Litmos may have the LMS part covered but there are other platforms that do this better along with providing an integrated all-in-one service or at the very least support API integration with other vendors to meet our requirements.

Easy to use, easy to learn, lots of support during the learning process. There are a few parts of the system we don't use and I'm hesitant to begin using because other clients have said they're difficult and cumbersome (certifications) or outdated (libraries)

SAP Litmos is convenient to use. It can be easily linked with existing systems with out-of-the-box connectors or APIs. Automated email invitations are available for new users. It also provides a free trial demo for the new users so that they can operate it without any problem.

We rarely have issues with down time. Obviously, the user's browser, etc. can come into play. But, overall, this is what I would call stable software. And, it has the advantage of being accessed over the internet so learners can access from home if they want.

Performance

Pages do not load quickly. Often times any action or selection of a box, drop down, check, pretty much ANY Javascript interaction causes the whole entire page to load/reload/start doing something in the background. This makes a nightmare for having to mass edit courses or upload ILT sessions. It's the one of the archaic web designs they use that really bugs me as an admin and makes working in the portal at times intolerable and insufferable

They still have a way to go with their reporting. But, they have been working on this and they continue to improve.
Aside from reporting, I would say that SAP Litmos performs very well. I rarely have any issues at all - even given the things I normally have open on my computer!

Its always important to have support when you are facing problems and when you are the main admin of the organization. Cornerstone Support is very supporting when you have not found the answer in the help guide. its very useful to have a team support to guide you.

The knowledgebase is very generic, so beyond some basic, "this is how you use Litmos", I am not super impressed with the self-service options for troubleshooting issues or finding best practices from peers. Getting a response from specialists also takes a great deal of effort. The initial ticket is almost never where my answer comes from, so I have to wait on the escalation to take place, and usually that goes to an account specialist. Once I get that, there is usually a back and forth before we agree on what the issue is. Service is always courteous, but not efficient. I am never sure where my ticket stands with regard to escalation/processing, so I have to inquire. Service tickets and service are not a clean process right now, at least not for me. Nothing like it was during our implementation.

we use also to admin all our training in person events and sessions. Its easy to admin this kind of trainings and automatize some processes we have. Also de user experience and the integration with other systems helps to the employees to use more. All modules integrated oriented to develop people is the principal reason to have CSOD. The training administration is very complete and allows to automate many processes.

The online modules are pretty good. You can access them at any time, which we have done. You learn a lot in the beginning, but having the ability to retake short lessons when you are working on those items was very helpful.

Dig deep on what your current processes are and how they match up to Cornerstone OnDemand functionality. It's not that the Cornerstone OnDemand is bad, it just the amount of work it requires you to do to get your current data to fit into their system.

Alternatives Considered

Cornerstone OnDemand

The Sales Pitch for Cornerstone while being great, left us a bit disappointed when the tool got implemented. Although it is a game-changer and radically improved the learning experience the after-sales service has left us a bit disappointed. Since the overall package makes up for the situation, we can safely recommend it but while exercising caution.

SAP Litmos

Having reviewed our situation regularly in regards to ensuring our learners have learning tech at the bleeding edge, which goes for both an off-the-shelf LMS/LXP product and building a bespoke LMS system, SAP Litmos continues to be the best choice for our business model. Off-the-shelf LMS systems all do the same functions pretty well in regards to hosting content, but the continued development of both the integrations & features make SAP stand out, alongside their easy to navigate platform - it also stands out as having an easy to administer from a back-office POV allowing a number of stakeholders to assist in the marking and ongoing development of content.
